It is quiet in the house this afternoon, a rarity it seems and I am tempted to take a nap (also a rarity), but I didn't want to let too much time go by before I updated you on the March Madness Fundraiser results. We had several people join us as monthly donors and we added $240 extra a month, bringing our monthly donations to $626.33. Having a consistent amount of money is fantastic for any ministry and we so appreciate all you do!!
I am leaving May 3rd for Romania and will be there for two weeks. This year, I am traveling alone and have a full schedule planned already! I will be working at the two hospitals, of course, holding the babies and doing whatever our employee, Alina lets me do. LOL! I will be purchasing supplies for the hospitals as well as, connecting with the multiple directors of the foundations we help; finding out what their needs are and purchasing them. A stop to see the women who make the JoyBeadz is also a must!
I am also hoping to go into one of the city's orphanages with a friend this year to see how the children are living there and to talk with the kids. The new after school daycare project we have been helping with should be close to opening and I have purchased several educational wall clings to decorate the building with. We are very excited about this new project starting and the impact it could have on these tender Roma children being raised in abject poverty.
We still need donations so if you are interested in giving a one time gift of any amount, it will be put to good use! Above all else, please keep us in your prayers specifically for traveling safety and strength for myself and protection and peace at home for my family.
